VIKOR expands company with the acquisition of Pathwave Construction Division
SIOUX FALLS, SD, July 06, 2022
Over the past few years, VIKOR has expanded its geographic footprint to nine offices in the U.S. and offers services to more than half of the United States. With the addition of the Construction Division from Pathwave, Inc. VIKOR’s team increases to more than 235 employees.
In addition to construction, Pathwave, Inc. provides a purpose-built tool for the telecom industry that helps contractors, carriers, and site owners connect the field to the back office. The opportunity to work with Pathwave and acquire the Pathwave Construction Division will allow VIKOR to continue expanding services and strengthen its commitment to Unity, Dedication, and Elevation and allow Pathwave to focus on its software offerings. VIKOR will utilize Pathwave’s purpose-built telecom field operations software to consistently deliver quality closeout packages and never miss or lose another photo.
“The Pathwave Construction Division has built a reputation as a leader in the microwave space and is a perfect overlay with VIKOR’s current service offering. We look forward to collaborating with their outstanding employees and client base. Working with the Pathwave team on this acquisition has been a pleasure and we look forward to helping them as they continue the rollout of their best-in-class field operations software,” said VIKOR CEO, Craig Snyder.
Pathwave CEO, Sean Kramer stated “VIKOR is an ideal partner, with their leadership and proven ability, to bring construction services into larger projects in more geographies. Pathwave Construction and VIKOR are both built on the same core values with a focus and obsession with safety. VIKOR is the right company to continue to build on Pathwave Construction’s microwave expertise and reach. I am excited to see the growth and continued success of VIKOR.”
